The fundraiser will be held on May 22nd at the Landmark Center in St. Paul. Bill Clinton has been actively campaigning for his wife’s presidential campaign. New York Senator Hillary Clinton is engaged in a fierce battle with Illinois Senator Barack Obama to win the Democratic nomination. Obama won Minnesota’s precinct caucuses in February and has a substantial lead in endorsements from the state’s superdelegates, who aren’t bound by the caucus votes. Obama has the endorsement of ten superdelegates. Clinton is being backed by three. DFL Congressman Collin Peterson has yet to say who he’ll endorse. Two unpledged add-on delegates will also be chosen at the State Party Convention in June.
